Jarren and the Tooth Fairy

So Jarren basically yanked his 2nd tooth out with floss a few days ago. It was barely loose, but within 15 minutes he had it just hanging there, I quickly finished it off for him. What's funny about this is what a thinker this kid is. The Tooth Fairy brought him some money, but didn't take his tooth. So... the next morning he proceeded to tell me that he might try putting his tooth under his pillow again to get more money.

Hmmm. Good thinking. Too bad it's not that easy.

A Conversation with Karli

Here was a conversation we had at breaksfast a few days ago; it totally cracked me up.

Karli- (to Jarren)- "You're a hampster."
Jarren- "No, I'm not."
Karli- "Uh-huh"
Jarren- "No, I'm not."
Karli- "Uh-huh. Mom said."
(Mom thinking; why would I say that.)
Karli- "Uh-huh. Mom said boys are hampsters."
(Mom frantically thinking. What would I say that would sound like hampsters. Yes! Light goes
Mom- "Yes Karli, you are right! Boys are handsome!"

I was showing Kate the snow that was falling outside this morning. I pointed out that it was "snow". Kate then informed me that it was "bubbles". I had to think about it for a minute, but I guess if you think about it snow does sort of look like a whole bunch of bubbles.
